These DeBoles penne noodles are packed in an 8 ounce box and contain enough noodles for at least 3 meals or so.
The penne is simple and quick to prepare as most noodles are. It is suggested to cook between 8 and 12 minutes, and rinse with cold water. I found that these noodles taste a bit better cooked at the 11 minute mark. I noticed that when the noodles are softer, they tend to split less and their texture is better. Undercooked ( at 8 or 9 minutes) and you’ll find them slightly tough and splitting as you try to eat them. But be careful, don’t exceed 12 minutes or you’ll get a bowl of mush! I know, kind of tricky.
The noodles hold thick sauces fairly well thanks to the ridges in the pasta, but the overall flavor seemed to be lacking. In my opinion, these noodles are “Ok”, but not something I would rave to my GF friends about.
Pros: holds sauce well, all natural, simple ingredients
Cons: tricky to cook “just right”
Rating: 3 1/2 stars
